Panthers interim GM Marty Hurney was reinstated to his position Friday, after the NFL informed the team it found no evidence that he violated the league’s personal conduct policy, the Panthers reported on their website.

The allegations against Hurney being essentially put to rest comes as a relief to the Panthers community, whose team was put up for sale by owner Jerry Richardson after sexual harassment allegations against him surfaced in December.

When Harbaugh went to Michigan, he made two moves to ensure this wouldn’t be an issue, taking transfers from O’Korn (Houston) and Jake Rudock (Iowa). Rudock had a strong 2015. O’Korn became a backup as Wilton Speight took the reins from Rudock. What Harbaugh didn’t secure was enough tackles to guarantee pass protection, and so despite a 6’6, 230-pound frame, Speight incurred injuries in both 2016 and in 2017.

Down late in the third period, Patrick Maroon appeared to have tied the game for Edmonton. The Coyotes, however, used their coach’s challenge to reverse the ruling, keeping the Oilers off the scoreboard due to goaltender interference.

The game will take place on Thursday, Aug. 2 at 8 p.m. ET at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio. Traditionally it was held on a Sunday, but that was changed starting in 2017.

Blaine Gabbert looked like a real quarterback, the Cowboys got creative with their playcalling, and Zeke Elliott ate his beard — really.

The Hall of Fame game allows both teams to start training camp early, which could be a benefit to new Bears head coach Matt Nagy.

It should be a good weekend for both teams involved, as they get an early start to the 2018 season while honoring two of the best players their franchises have ever seen.

I’m uncomfortable in public restrooms; blame my mother. One time at a Social Distortion concert in at the Ogden Theatre in Denver it took me almost 20 minutes to relieve myself in a trough, and I really had to go. I can count on one hand the number of times I’m number two’d in a restaurant, gas station, etc. It’s kept me away from sporting events too.bears_093-223x223
